We’ve started a national movement to WALK IN for public schools | Be a part of history on Wednesday, February 17
In September, Milwaukee educators, parents, students and community supporters proclaimed our support for public schools in Milwaukee when we held walk-ins at over 100 public schools in our city to celebrate and reclaim our schools. As a result, we have pushed back school takeover attempts and forced the county executive and takeover commissioner to publicly commit to supporting MPS and to taking over only one empty building.
On Wednesday, February 17, 2016, our movement goes national as families and educators at over 700 schools – in Milwaukee and across the nation – walk in. Together we are standing up against school takeovers and demanding public community schools that welcome and serve ALL children and offer excellent academics, art, music, physical education, libraries, and support services including health care, before- and after-school care, tutoring, and full support for family involvement.
Join us! WALK IN on Wed., Feb. 17, and be a part of history!
